Happy People Say…

“In addition to several successful appeals and events, I was able to start this year with $50,000 in the bank which is huge for us!

Before working with Sandy, I felt the pressure of funding my organization’s programs but was stuck in a cycle of doing the same things we’d always done, getting the exact same results. Sandy helped me figure out where I was stuck, and what to do to raise the money I needed to fully fund my budget. I’m now more confident and have the tools to be successful!”

Kristi Werre, Co-Founder/Executive Director, Illuminate India, Medford, OR

“We hit our annual fundraising goal in just 6 months!

We stretched our stretch goal so many times this year, that we are finally back to a goal of $400,000 from our original strategic plan. That seemed impossible 4 years ago. At this point, we have raised $375,000 and have more to come in by the end of the fiscal year.

We wouldn’t have gotten there without you. You believed in us and helped us believe in ourselves and the results are truly magical. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Ellen Bushman, Former VP of Development
, Lutheran Family Services, Roanoke, VA

“We got a $100,000 donation, and we’re $40,000 ahead of last year!

I joined the Mastermind for encouragement, inspiration and support. I’ve grown more confident and become bolder because I see others doing amazing things and it inspires me to try too.

Our messaging has become much more donor centered and I can better articulate the impact our donors have in the lives of the people we serve, which makes our donors feel like they’re now part of our work.”

Dawn Owens, Founder/Executive Director
